Women's Rights Collection

This collection contains photographs and documents relating to women’s suffrage. The items in this collection are from or connected to Seneca Falls, New York. 

The first Women’s Rights Convention was held in Seneca Falls in 1848, putting into motion the efforts of women’s rights leaders to achieve equality for women in our nation. Among the many people leading these efforts were Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, Amelia Bloomer, Jane Hunt, and Lucretia Mott.

Seneca Falls continues to celebrate these achievements through many events throughout the year, and there are several memorials and museums honoring our achievements.
